2 questions. Can people go without sleep (24 hour a day conciousness) for many days. In other words is it physicly possible for a human to retain constant conciounsness for weeks, mounths or years? 2nd, If we can't do this, why do humans truly need to sleep? Why isn't resting, or just lying down for 8 hours enough? Sleep doesn't seen to make evelutionary sence either. Isn't wasting 6-9 hours a day doing nothing a bit wasteful? thanks for the time
